OMG really? You became a fan in 2012? You need to do some serious watching of 2007 and 2008 matches. Ana used to be brilliant.. now she has flashes every now and then but she isn't even a shadow of her former self. Take a look at the following matches:

2006 Montreal final vs Hingis.
2007 RG SF vs Sharapova.
2007 Stuttgart 1st round vs Schnyder.
2008 AO 3rd round vs Srebotnik.
2008 IW Final vs Kuznetsova.
2008 RG 2nd round vs Safarova.

That was top Ana.

And for some highly competitive exciting high quality matches:

2007 Berlin final vs Kuznetsova.
2007 Wimbledon QF vs Vaidisova.
2007 LA SF vs Jankovic.
2008 AO SF vs Hantuchova.
2008 RG SF vs Jankovic.

Just to name a few.. you will see how special Ana once was as a tennis player.

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

What I write is my opinion, and my opinion only.
